There is always one of those Saturday or Sunday mornings when you get up, and think, I sure would love to have something different. Sure would like to have some biscuits. But then, you blink your eyes and say to yourself, "That is just too much work!"
Now in about ten minutes you can have these delicious little biscuits made and enjoy them with eggs and coffee.
All you do is, while the skillet is heating up to medium low, mix up the biscuit ingredients. Follow the recipe. Place on a plate. Take the same pan, cook your eggs, boil the kettle or put the coffee on and you are ready.
Easy enough to do just for yourself, pretty and tasty enough to do for the whole family or impress mom!
Stove Top - Tea Biscuits
Only minutes to make these delicious biscuits for breakfast or any time you would like a quick snack bread. The Resistant Starch and Vitamin Enrichment in Astoria Mills All Purpose Flour Mix #1 makes these even healthier.
Whisk together in a bowl:
1/2 cup cold water
1 tablespoon oil
2 eggs (or flax seed substitute)
Blend together dry ingredients:
1 cup Astoria Mills All Purpose Flour - Mix #1 (Contains vitamins, minerals and resistant starch for added nutrition)
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon Baking Powder
Mix wet and dry ingredients together. Drop spoonfuls of batter onto a pre-warmed (no oil) cast iron skillet, or non stick skillet. Flatten each with your spoon. Cover and let cook for about 3 minutes, flip and cook on the other side for about 3 or 4 minutes until slightly golden. Serve warm as shown with eggs 'over easy' and coffee. Nice biscuits to scoop up that delicious yolk with.
These are very easy to make for a quick tea time snack and taste great with butter and jam. Or for a Victorian Tea, serve with clotted cream and fruit preserves.
The morning I made these for hubby and me, we saved a couple and had them with tea mid afternoon.
There are times, when you just need something simple and easy.
